    12 oz of nice smooth whisky or bourbon and sip it so it keeps your throat coated for about 30 minutes. If you want you can add a little honey in it for the flavoring..

    Try gargling with salt and warm water.. Do not pressure your doctor for antibiotics—let him determine if they are really necessary.
